This summer, I and 13 other Marin Academy students, are travelling to Daraja Academy in Kenya, Africa. Daraja Academy is an all girls boarding school that teaches the girls (grades 9 through 12) leadership and academic skills in order to live independent and self-reliant lives. On the day of the race in San Francisco, my partner (a Daraja student in 9th grade) Winrose, will be running the same distance in Kenya! 100% of the money will go to Daraja Academy. I sincerely appreciate any donation, large or small.
